If you’re a casual fan of gospel music, and haven’t heard Anthony Nelson & The Overcomers before, they typically create praise and worship, as well as God’s blessings and deliverance songs. The songs are moving, reflective, and place you in a spirit of thankfulness and worship. The collective has a found its comfort level a while back and has complete projects that blesses you from beginning to end. The new single “Deeper,” falls perfectly into this spectrum of sentiment.
The voice and conviction finds a place in your situation and ministers to it. This song will pushed all other projects to the back of your Pod. If you want to be ministered to by a great singing voice in gospel today, by all means purchase this single quickly. This recording has everything that you will need to get through the day or any situation, because it wants, it begs, it implies to go ‘deeper’ in finding faith. What a gift to the body of Christ this voice and vessel is.
This is a song that is not just for yourself but to be used as a ministry tool unto them that may have lost their praise, or just to continue to encourage someone in their walk, or to usher someone into the presence of Jesus through worship or even further into worship and praise. To help strengthen those that may be standing in warfare for their own concerns or for someone else’s and need a refreshing to sustain them in their battle to go beyond their limits, to go ‘deeper’.
I like the fact that the singer is speaking to himself, and in so doing, the song speaks to just where you yourself may be the same moment and time; it’s encouraging, and lifts your spirit. With “Deeper,” Anthony Nelson & The Overcomers get to the heart of the matter, as the message is clear, we need to stop being superficial if we are to find the truth. We need to dig “Deeper”, within ourselves and within our faith. Laced with good production, superb vocals, great lyrical content and the usual anointed sound, this will usher you into the presence of exactly where you need to be.
